reasonable to say there isn't some form of system redundancy. one of the issues we encounter with technology problems in trading isn't there isn't a backup system but it's hard to have a backup system for every possible type of problem. if a server breaks surely they have a failover. my guess is that they might some data issue here and those are a little bit harder to track, but still, the other thing i would point out is that people shouldn't be comparing problems on the exchanges to really what are accelerated human error issues like what happened at goldman sachs and the flash crash is not is not indicative of the same kind of problems. technology is going to break from time to time. there were trading errors and problems before technology and now that we have it we're going to see them. it's going to shake confidence but people should be cognizant of that. >> i want to go to better that kooms in a second but joe and his partner, sal are probably the guys who have been out there the most and they know the market dynamics. here's his tweet. dear dr. frankenstein what do you think of the mo
